Knit with Aabhar – Matting Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description


Matting Stitch Knitting Pattern is an all-over lace knitting pattern that appears like a mesh of crochet chain stitches.

Though it is simply a 2-row repeat knitting pattern, it requires some skill to master the two special stitches, namely, cross knit and cross purl.

Matting Stitch Knitting Pattern is a fantastic pattern for knitting shawls, wraps, and light summer tops. One thing to note about the pattern is it shrinks a lot and has quite a bit of flexibility. It may look small while knitting, but it can stretch a lot.
